Awesome is a very overused adjective these days but it is probably the only way to adequately describe Glencoe. The mountains especially when they are snow topped are simply breathtaking and the wildness of the whole area is very exciting and exhilarating and one feels totally spiritual and at ease and peace with natural beauty yet with an edge as...

The National Trust for Scotland visitor centre offers a good place to start -especially in the rain! The geography and the history all get time and space for the visitor to try to understand both. Then there are the walks - we chose to go up to Signal Rock and enjoyed the woodland walk despite the rain- I'm not sure... More

When you are in the neighborhood, don't miss it. Its one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland. High mountains (we had snow in May) surrounding it and not to forget the breathtaking scenery of Rannoch more. (You need your own transport or like hiking).

Glen Coe is a beautiful trail through the highlands. If your time is limited a drive through the glen is picturesque but it is best enjoyed by foot or bike. Walking the trails and enjoying the beautiful Scottish scenery. Also a stop at the Visitors Center gives you a background on the tragedy of the highland clearances

Driving the road from Glencoe village through the valley is a must. Stopping to look and walk is a pleasure. We drove to the top of the Devil's Staircase and back to get the best effect, which was great despite the rain! Go to the Visitor Centre first then you will understand what you are looking at as you go.

This is the most beautiful glen. It is empty though and yet around 300yrs ago it was a thriving community. Thanks to infamy and betrayal it is now empty and has never recovered. Enjoy the besuty while reflecting on the history.

Absolutely stunning part of Scotland. If you've never visited or your thinking of going this is a must. Every time I travel to Scotland I always make sure I travel through Glen Coe. The sights are out of this world.

We visited Glen Coe on a 2 week road trip through Scotland. Although we did not stop to camp or even hike, we did stop at any chance we could for pics along the road. I wanted to share the views and encourage anyone to visit this beautiful part of this spectacular Scotland!

The most rugged, yet entrancing landscape I have ever had the privilege to see. Glen Coe is truly an amazing drive through the highlands, and one that no visitor should ever miss if they are nearby. I had to pull over many many times just to take a picture and soak in the wonderous view. Not to be missed.
